Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we make ourselves believe that if we're being left it's not because we are not loved but because of other inevitable reasons which have nothing to do with us? Why can't we just accept that things change, people grow apart, and love doesn't always last forever?
I keep finding people who think they've just been dumped because of too much distance, too much fighting, too many problems, when the truth is there was just too little love.
I guess it's just hard to accept that someone you still love with all your heart just doesn't feel that way about you anymore. How can you not feel awful about yourself when you realise you couldn't make someone love you?
And in a weird way the ones who tries to break your heart in a gentle way don't help. I mean, if you don't love someone anymore, if you don't see each other together ever again, just come right out and say it. Euphemisms don't help. Don't be afraid to hurt someone by saying what you really feel because, hello? You're already hurting them anyways, so you might as well do it right.
It's too easy to hold on to things like "our timing is wrong" or "I just don't want this right now". Be fair and don't leave hope in people's hearts.
Because hope is deadly.
Hope destroys you slowly.
Hope doesn't let you move on.
If I pretend that nothing ever went wrong, I can get to my sleep , I can think that we just carried on.
